    ^That's a really cool name.

    My name, in case I haven't already posted because I forget these things, is Aspen. I do like it because it's unique, but in real life and online, I prefer to be called Colorado, which is a nickname I got two years ago from my grandma's drunk neighbor. Also, all of the other people I know who are named Aspen are ├╝ber-feminine and it makes me cringe when people call it "pretty" or "cute" because that doesn't really describe me.

    My name is Leslie and I was indirectly named after my great grandfather's brother Leslie who everyone called Pete and I have no idea why they didn't just name him Peter or something.

    Anyway people are ALWAYS spelling my name wrong. They either put 'Lesley' or when I say it they write 'Leslee' I mean come on people.

    I've never really been teased for it except when people called me Lesbo in 5th grade. And I can't say I hate it because I don't, it just fits me so well. You're talking to the chick that was going to be named Josephine and called Josie or Sophie so i'm fine with Leslie. xD

    I'm pretty sure I replied to this a while back, but I'll post again anyways cause I'm too lazy to look :P

    Name is Lynai, pronounded Lin-A. I don't know how my mom came up with it, but yeah. I like it but clearly my name is just weird because literally everyone forgets my name, can't pronounce or spell it either. It's kind of annoying really, I mean it's really not that hard to say. And it's insulting the way people misspell it, but I don't blame them. I can tell when someone is going to call me but doesn't know how to say it. It's ok I guess, I mean it's different and easy for people to remember me (; but it's also embarrassing when you're the only person who's name people screw up. Everyone just ends up calling me Nai, might as well change my name to that.

    My name is Aria. If I'm named after anybody, I never knew them. I think my mom just picked that name out of a book.
    But I love love love my middle name, Elisabeth. Named after my great-grandmother.

    My full name is Jacqueline. (Cringe.) I find it quite an odd / weird name to have in the 21st century, simply because it's so old and, well, regal in a way. I don't really like it either. It's too much of a mouthful, and I don't think it really suits me.

    My middle name, however, I love. Seana. Pronounced "sea-ana" for those who thought it would be like Shauna with the 'sea' sound.

    My names derived from a favourite name of my mum's and one of my dad's friends. Yeah, real original, but still.

    My name is Tamisha, and I mean it's a pretty alright name, I like to think.

    The only reason I get irritated with it is when people mispronounce it, sometimes "ta-ne-sha" or when people spell it "Tameisha". I mean it's really not that difficult of a name, yano? The same goes for my last name and it's so irritating.

    My name is Stormy. I blame my dad for his awesome unoriginal brain because I was born during a snow storm. He mostly did it out of spite because my granpa wanted to name me summer. I love my name, despite my favorite villain, Cruella, making fun of my name when I went to Disney as a child. I'm just now getting over that, as stupid as it sounds. But I just go by Tom. They used to call me that back in school and it kinda stuck.

    I think you did great on the two of them. They just worked together really well and you kept him shrouded even when speaking about him, which totally made me want to learn more even though the cards were on the table. I'm not sure if that makes sense, but it's true to me.
